I don't know the Bronica GS1 - I have the Bronica 6x6 SQ-B...super! I develop and print both 35mm and 120 film.
    look forward to see you here again.

    Thanks for the welcome Peter,

    I plan on converting a storage room in the house to a darkroom, it is right next to the bathroom, so getting the plumbing done should not be to much work.
    Been trying to figure out which enlarger to get for 6x7 B&W, but so far I am still uncertain. Not many in Norway selling enlargers it seems, even used ones. Might be that I buy a brand new one, upper limit about 1500 USD. I know I can can one hell of an enlarger used for that kind of money but then i have to buy it from overseas and I am sceptical about buying something like that unseen, packaged and sent by someone I do not know.

    Hi Kim!

    you must have a better idea of the situation in Norway, but here in Finland enlargers are often sold or even donated through local photography forums. I have not done any wet printing for 15 years myself (which is a shame!), but I would not think that you would have to invest so much money in getting started in it as there should still be plenty of school labs etc getting rid of their equipment...

    Just my two pence!

    cheers,

    Jani

    Hello and welcome, Kim.

    I have been rather busy lately with new job and other stuff, or I would have jumped in and said hello earlier!

    Welcome to APUG Kim! Like you, I face a similar problem in Japan. New enlargers are possible to come by, but used ones are sold for almost as much as new which is a bit hard on the wallet (and piece of mind!). Good luck with finding yours.

    Velkommen ^^

    Almost in the same boat as you.
    I am 37 now, but started up with a little analogue 35mm shooting and developing (and scanning) at 32.
    I feel I am really riding solo concerning analogue, because almost every person I know that takes photos as a hobby/profession, use digital.

    it actually feels good to swim against the stream to be honest. No one can touch you! =D
    - Although I still shoot digital in "dynamic" situations, like events or situations that need speedy editing and delivery and studio/model sessions which require "fashion editiong" in photoshop etc.

    Concerning used stuff: There are a lot of good used stuff on foto.no/bruktmarked and on finn.no (see http://foto.no/cgi-bin/bruktmarked/v...tstyrtypeid=14 and for instance this one after searching for "mørkeromsutstyr" : http://www.finn.no/finn/torget/tilsa...nkode=31941982 , I have no idea if Kaiser is considered good or bad though, but stuff is out there.).

    I bought a Durst 670 enlarger via finn.no three weeks ago, which occupy some space in my bathroom, I am very happy with it =D

    Välkommen! Visst är det häftigt att analogt foto kan fascinera så mycket!
